Announcing the Clay Platte Home Educators Regional Spelling Bee
Friday, May 8 at 10:00 a.m.
101 NW 99th St.
Kansas City, MO 64155
This relaxed spelling bee is for students who want a friendly bee but
with real competition. It is open to any homeschool student* who is in
grades one through twelve. A copy of the rules, guidelines and word
lists can be found at: http://www.cphecorp.org/spelling/
To have a successful bee we really need volunteers, so please consider
serving your homeschool community in this way. We especially need
judges for each of the rooms. You do not have to have a child
participating to serve as a volunteer.
New for 2009 – Registration Deadline! Registrations are due April
24th. We need to have at least two spellers in a level to hold the bee
for that grade. If there are not enough registered spellers in a
particular level the speller will be notified by April 27th and will
be given the option of competing at the next highest grade level.
To register, volunteer, or ask questions you may contact Kellie Wiersma

* CPHE defines a homeschool as one that is in full compliance with
Missouri homeschool law for ages 7-16. Students outside this age group
must receive at least 50% of their education at home, exclusive of
enrichment programs and/or college courses. Students from other states
should be homeschooled according to their state law.
